What makes us distinctive

What makes us distinctive?

Blackheath High School is a unique and historic school. While this is best appreciated through a visit, there are several distinctive features to highlight.

Click here to read our Mission Statement.

Putting girls first

Blackheath High has been educating girls since 1880. Put simply, we are specialists in what we do.

This is a school where we encourage students to ignore gender stereotypes. Girls relish ballet, football, science or art with equal passion. We place strong emphasis on positive female role models. We focus on cultivating girls’ courage and we have a wealth of experience in building intellectual agility and emotional resilience. This means we are well known for the poised and impressive nature of our graduates.

Inspiration

Our teachers are subject experts, with a passion for teaching our students. They embrace innovation and creativity in their teaching.

They make the most of our small class sizes and vibrant atmosphere to engage their students. Whatever the changes in education reform, the priority at Blackheath High is to inspire students to think big and love learning. This is a school where there is no ceiling to what girls can achieve.

Balance

At Blackheath High we are passionate about co-curricular activities and academic enrichment.

We know they provide girls with valuable soft-skills: dedication; teamwork; persistence. They also create a healthy balanced approach girls can take with them when they leave us. We offer a mind-boggling array of clubs, societies and enrichment activities that the girls absolutely love. Whether it is Martial Arts in Mandarin or the cut and thrust of debating in Model United Nations; girls are spoilt for choice of activities.

Community

Blackheath High is well known for the warmth and diversity of its community and the quality of relationships between teachers, students and parents.

Unusually amongst London schools, we have a close-knit community with a village feel. Strong bonds are established across ages, nationalities and social boundaries, creating an atmosphere that is compassionate, supportive and open-minded. We value the part we play in local life. The school has links with a number of charities and volunteer groups, such as the SHINE programme, in which staff and students devote their Saturday mornings to supporting girls and boys from local primary schools.

An international outlook

We are incredibly fortunate to be located in a cosmopolitan and stunning corner of South East London.

Situated on the edge of beautiful Blackheath and the picturesque Greenwich Park, we benefit from the international influences of the local area. Our curriculum and approach are focused upon cultivating this international outlook. We celebrate the richness and diversity of cultures and perspectives within and outside the school.
